foundation. the hkh foundation. barbara g. fleischman. and by our sole corporate sponsor, mutual of america, designing customized individual and group retirement products. that's why we're your retirement company. >> welcome. for each of us, there are days that are turning points. a day that changes our personal life, or a day that changes the nation. sometimes, very rarely, it's one and the same day. just such a day happened to me on wednesday, august 28th, 1963. i was 29 years old, the deputy director of the peace corps, with offices one block from the white house and a short walk from the lincoln memorial. that morning, largely on impulse, inspired by a friend, i joined the quarter of a million americans, people of every age and color, who had come for the march on washington. the event is now most famous for martin luther king, jr.'s "i have a cream "dream" speech, but like many of the others there, i was first transfixed by one of the other speakers, the youngest on the platform. >> brother john lewis. >> his name was john lewis. he had just been named head of sncc, the student nonviol

sponsor, mutual of america, designing customized individual and group retirement products. that's why we're your retirement company. >> welcome. there's hardly a sentient grown-up in this country who isn't aware that our economy is no longer working for vast numbers of everyday people. the rich and powerful have more wealth and power than ever. everyone else keeps losing ground. between 2009 and 2011 alone, income fell for 99% of americans, while it rose 11% for the top 1%. since the worst of the financial crisis, that top 1% has captured the increases in income while the rest of the country has floundered. stunning, isn't it? the behavior of many of those one percenters brought on the financial crisis in the first place. we turned around and rescued them, and now their wealth is skyrocketing once again. at the bottom, working people are practically flat on their back. we talk a lot about what's happening to the middle class, but the american dream's really become a nightmare for the poor. just about everyone has an opinion about the trouble we're in. the blame game is at fever pitch in
